You know who didn’t get trounced? Mexico. That’s who. I thought this game would be todays lopsided one. Instead it was a close hard-fought battle, with the better team emerging victorious. But not until after an extra half hour.
The first 2 goals came in the 6th and 10th minutes with Mexico striking first off a corner. Crespo answered for Argentina in the 10th and that’s the way it stayed for the next hour and a half until Maxi Rodriguez struck the most beautiful of goals into the Mexis net. Game over. But though Argentina looked strong, they didn’t look unbeatable. Mexico gave ’em trouble. And good on ya Mexico.
